The bike is an 05 660. My issue is this:

riding along and the temp light and fan will come on. At the same time the starter will engage. The bike will shut off normally with the key, but when i turn it back on it tries to start on its own. Leave it alone for 5 min or so and everything works again.
I took all the connectors apart and added dialectric grease to them, opened the harness and looked for rubbed thru wires and nothing. This is the first major wiring issue in the 8 years I've owned it. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Sounds like you are going to have to chase all your wires down as it sounds like an intermittent short. They can be a bugger to find unfortunately. Good hunting!

If you can not find a wiring short or wires that have rubbed through on the frame then I would start investigating your CDI box.
